SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An environmental group is asking the U.S. Forest Service to delay Snowbird Ski Resort's construction of a restaurant atop the 11,000-foot Hidden Peak.
The group Save Our Canyons says Snowbird has made significant changes to the plan since the Forest Service approved the project in 1999 and a new study is needed to review the possible environmental impacts.
The Forest Service says it's considering the request.
Even with today's announcement that the Cumming Family would be acquiring a majority of Snowbird, because it's a private deal - and not done through the family business, Powdr Corp - there's no news whether PCMR Season pass holders will enjoy any additional skiing benefits. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.
